What is it with game devs coming empty handed at E3s since 2012 !?

Lazy or just over-confident? Probably both!

I'd be so into this game if it was a third person, just had enough of all these first person hack and slash zombie games.

"Dead Island 2 Stage Demo"..... Nice misleading title, fucktards.

There was no DEMO to be seen here at all, just the trailer from the conference and basically an interview.

Don't call it "STAGE DEMO" if it's not.

I'm assuming California was chosen for cultural reasons, but for sealing off a large area Florida would be a lot more believable :), and I guess also would be more island-like.

hope this game will be good because the first DI was pretty dissapointing

Why dead island 2 when there's already dying light.

@bezza2011 Hmm... Is there any other FPS, Hack n' Slash, Melee based, Zombie themed game out there? I might be mistaken?

@GameFan1983 Dead island 2 is by deep silver. Dying light is by Techland.

@tableofjapan  Considering this is made by Yager, this can be a lot better. But at the same time Dying Light comes from Techland... so there is something to worry about.

@ecede @bezza2011 Dying Light will be a FPS, hack and slash zombie game. Maybe that's what they meant - they want to see more variety in the coming year. Or maybe they're tired of FPS's with zombie elements/zombie packs. Or maybe they meant they're tired of Dead Island (as a franchise) being a FPS hack and slash zombie game.


All I know is, I kind of tired of zombie games in general. They are so many more other monsters to choose from.

@runningman5ksmak You said you loved DI 1 and you hated DIR right? Why pass on this? It isn't coming out any soon, or even close to Dying Light so...
